Port glass

The glass is complete. It includes a bowl, a stem and a foot. The bowl is bucket-shaped, with a thick, flat base, walls that flare slightly at the top and a rim that extends from the base. The stem is solid and spindle-shaped, separated by a flattened central knob. The foot is circular and flat with a central circular bulge. The underside has a slight off-center circular depression; the decoration is carved. It is geometric. The lower third of the bowl is adorned with wide flutes and a domed top. The stem features a flattened central knob separating the two spindle-shaped stem sections with flat knob ends.
